UK’s best price and quality

Light. Robust. Unputdownable. Paperback books, bound to last.

Easy to pick up. Hard to put down. Paperback books are made to be read. But they’re also often tossed into suitcases, shoved into pockets, and enjoyed on trains, planes, and sunloungers. It’s important that they maintain their integrity, so that their stories can be told.

Choose from our range of binding options (perfect bound or stapled), paper types and weights, and trim sizes to make sure your epic sci-fi tale or windswept romance novel stays in one piece.

There is no better customer service than they have. I have an email tracker on my computer, so I can see when Mixam opens my email. They always respond within the next few minutes. They also have a feature called "remarks" when you can easily send messages to them when you order your product. It is perfect. Their ease of use of their website made everything so much easier. How you can see a preview of your product, how the pages will be put together in. It also gives you a proof so that you can print it and see how it will look like. Their delivery was spot on time. It was exactly when they said it would deliver. I ordered 50 booklets, and when the booklets arrived, it was in a giant bag and the books were wrapped in shrink wrap. This protected it from water during the delivery. There were no damages during the delivery. When I opened the box, I ordered 50, but I counted 54. They gave me 4 extra books with no extra cost. That's amazing. The colors of the book were spot on. I had some spots in my book where the details were extremely small and semi-transparent. You can still see it. It's perfect The spine (staples) were perfectly done. Everything was exactly lined up. This has been the best company ever. 10/5 stars would recommend I will be using mixam again!

Mixam's service was wonderful.We presented a last minute time sensitive order - they helped us with processing the order, and confirmed they could do it within our timescale. However they even managed to get it done quicker that we anticipated. In addition to the price being extremely competitive we are also delighted with the quality of the booklet they produced for us. We would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for printing work - we will certainly use them again.

Info for file setup

Paperback book print
file setup information

How to supply your print files
You can supply your files in a way that suites you - as single pages or spreads, individual files for each page, or as a single combined file.
Important - your cover
Your cover is made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.
Bleed
We ask for a 3mm bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Format and orientation
You can choose either an A4 (210 x 297 mm) or A5 (148 x 210 mm) format, and a landscape or portrait orientation.
Binding
The binding options available for paperback books are perfect bound or stapled. For books with fewer than 25 pages, we recommend printing as a booklet.
Please note:
These available binding options are entirely dependent upon the number of pages and paper weight selected for your order. This is because there comes a point where the combined paper thickness is too much to effectively staple or stitch together, and will instead need to be held together by adhesive (otherwise known as ‘perfect binding’).

The opposite is true if there are too few pages for perfect binding to work. Our dynamic ordering system is smart enough to know when a limit has been reached, and will automatically switch to the required binding option.

Spine (for Perfect Binding)
If you choose perfect binding you have the option to upload the spine as a separate print file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. If you do not upload a print file for your spine it will be left blank.
The spine will also need a 3mm bleed at the top and bottom.
Completing your order
Before you can complete your order, you must make sure all page placeholders have been completed. For example, if you are ordering 32 pages, all 32 boxes must be filled. If you do not have enough content, you must add blank pages.
